Publisher's Description

St. Hemma of Gurk? St. Deicolus? These saints are not household names, but maybe they should be. Although the Church recognizes thousands of saints, a relatively small number of them are well known to most Catholics. This book introduces the reader to a group of diverse saints—men and women, single and married, from all corners of the world—whose exploits have been lost to most of us. Each story highlights an aspect of that saint’s life that can be applied to today’s circumstances. The book contains a short biography of each saint, a section on why that saint merits our attention and devotion today, and a short prayer.

Publisher Summary

Thousands of saints are formally recognized by the Catholic Church. While some are household names, have you heard of:

  • St. Bathilde, the slave queen?
  • St. Pietro Parenzo, the heavenly politician?
  • Bl. Sebastian de Aparicio, the first cowboy?
  • St. Mary Helen MacKillop, the excommunicated saint?

From these now-obscure saints or blesseds come amazing stories of virtue, vice, and the triumph of grace. Brian O'Neel tells these tales, often colorful and always compelling, with humor tempered by an obvious love for his subjects, explaining why they deserve our attention and devotion.

Editorial Reviews

"Saints' lives never cease to fascinate. We devour their biographies, sometimes craving tales of the miraculous; other times looking for the secret to holiness. How did this person do it? Is there something here that I can apply to my own spiritual journey?

But enough already of Therese, Francis, Padre Pio, and the top 40 rock stars of sanctity! There are other holy men and women whose lives can inspire us. Brian O'Neel has assembled a list of obscure saints and blesseds and unearthed the essential facts of their lives. The table of contents reads like a What Not to Name Your Baby list: Baudile, Radegund, Guntrum, Gangolf, Homobonus, and Lydwine! As the author moves out of the Dark Ages and into recent centuries, the names become more commonplace but the stories no less unknown to us. These O'Neel relates in three-page sketches, explaining at the end, 'Why this saint deserves our attention.'" — Catholic Digest, October, 2012
